Carmex Summer Beach Tote and Carmex Sticks Review and Giveaway!



It's summertime and that means that my lips have to be protected from the sun. During this time, I am always out in the garden and it gets hot. I find that if my lips get a little sun, they get dry and crack.

Luckily, I am a member of the Carmex Blog Squad and so I know that Carmex sticks will help me get through the summer with smooth and kissable lips!

To celebrate this summer, I was sent six Carmex® sticks including the NEW Pomegranate stick, which is fantastic. Also included were a the original Carmex stick, Lime Twist, Vanilla, Strawberry and Cherry. Each of the sticks contain a SPF of 15 to protect your lips from the effects of the summer sun. All came in a beautiful canvas tote that is fantastic for the beach, lake or gym.

I have reviewed the other flavors of Carmex sticks and they are all so delish. The new Pomegranate stick is really good too. It is a little sweet and a little tart. It left my lips soft and protected. I am also glad a Lime Twist stick was included because I had used up my previous samples and now I have more.

I love keeping my Carmex sticks everywhere. I have one in my purse, one at work in my desk, at home I have a few and I also keep some in our cars. They are great in the summer and winter or anytime of year! I know I will be taking my tote with me on our trip to Lake Lure next month along with my Carmex sticks to protect my lips from the sun.

And, of course, I have one of these prize packs to give away to one lucky reader! The winner will receive a prize that includes the beach tote and six (6) Carmex sticks including the NEW Pomegranate flavor! Just enter to win on the Rafflecopter widget below.
